Based on true events, the film tells the story of a socially awkward teen befriending misfits who hatch a plan to abduct the school’s arrogant rich kid — a scheme which eventually turns deadly.
“Dead Kids” is helmed by Mikhail Red who is also known for internationally acclaimed films like “Neomanila,” “Eerie” and “Birdshot,” the first Filipino film to stream on Netflix.
In the cast are Sue Ramirez, Khalil Ramos, Markus Paterson, Vance Larena, Kelvin Miranda, Gabby Padilla and Jan Silverio.
“Dead Kids,” produced by Globe Studios, will have its red carpet premiere at the Cinema One Originals film festival on November 17 at Gateway Mall Cinema. /gsg
